Public-Private Partnership


Dr. Jimba will introduce a Public-Private Partnership with three cases.

First, he will give the introduction. Then he will explain an example that many cities in Taiwan promoted healthy cities projects. In this project, the healthy cities network was enacted directly by the government but academic experts, NGOs. They observed for 6 years and check the results.

The next case is a partnership between private universities and the public service in Australia. In many parts of the world. research funding is increasing for collaborations and partnerships between knowledge users and researchers. So, such partnerships are beneficial if the university can show new findings that are socially and contextually useful for any health practice and policy.

Another research was conducted in 2014 under a partnership between private sector Menzies Institute for Medical Research, University of Tasmania, and public sector Tasmania State Service. A mixed-methods study was conducted to evaluate a health promotion program that targets 20,000 public sector employees. The objective was to investigate partnerships between policymakers and academics and to identify strategies that enabled the project to deliver key outcomes. Dr. Jimba will then conclude with their achievements.
